This scarce annual report on the state of Mexico by Lucas Alaman (1792-1853), Minister of Interior and Exterior Relations, was issued during a time of unrest in the republic, particularly with the growing resentment among Texas settlers. Alaman was a controversial figure in 19th-century Mexico. A scientist, politician, historian, diplomat, and writer, he was conservative by nature and expressed a nostalgia for monarchic rule. He was an influential politician in the early years of the Mexican Republic and favored a strong central government. Alaman was also instrumental in the creation of the Mexican National Archives and the Natural History Museum in Mexico City. This report reviews foreign relations, and lauds the republic's domestic tranquility, prosperity and freedoms. Palau 160863. (11 x 8 inches).
